Hi old friend I got to the best part of my computer.. Found my friend my blog… I was so worried that I would not find you.. For an object who can’t talk back to me you are a good friend… You help me talk things over in my head. you help me tell people who don’t know me and probley don’t care about my life and what is going on.. you help me tell people about my favorite thing to do in my life is my bookstore and how I have always wanted to have one, This online store has helped me fill my time when I have been sad, lonely, happy and glad… This blog is my second friend… My real friend was the first person to write a commment on here after I wrote.. She was the first person to buy a book from my bookstore. (Lucy Lipshits.) How about that for a name.. ‘
I want to thank @weatherangel for introducing you to me… and working with me to get u up and going….

The reason you got lost is because our computer crashed while we went away from it for one day… My shipping department is also a computer geek… in the repair department. He is retired and lives with me he is a husband, grandpa and a best friend.. Don’t know what I would do with out him.. Anyways my blog… thanks for being with me for almost a year… I just love writting on u and u help keep me sain…
Tomorrow I hope to have everything up and running again so I can put books and authors in you… and hope I don’t have to retake pictures of this weeks books as they are already in the computer that crashed but Gene is up looking files from as we speak.. He thought he had lost them all but he worked and worked till he thinks he has them but won’t know till he finishes….cross your fingers…. what a weekend…………come see our store at or

eCRATER is a little known place, where I can enter all my books for free, pay nothing to them when I sell books, or other items.  Then its also a place where you don’t have to pay allot when you buy…. I only charge 00.45 to 2.00 for used books… depending on shape they are in and size.  I have Harlequin which I can not sell on Ebay or Amazon as I would have to charge over a 1.00  Both these other stores charge huge fee’s which like any other business I would pass on to you so I could make money. I have a book in both these stores and I also have it in eCrater… You can see the difference in pricing… Check out “Waiting for Agnes by Joe Bullard.. its a new personally autographed book about the Coral Castle in Homestead,Fl. Its the only book I have been selling for awhile… People are not checking out my eCRATER store even though its easy to look at and over 1200 items in it. New and Used Books, audio,LARGE PRINT,Cd’s, collectibles, stuffed animals, flip flops (homemade decorated) We also have a big collection of Nora Roberts, and Debbie Macomber, Diana Palmer,James Patterson,and many more. We have over 120 named authors as well as ones in sections of Romance, Mystery,Fantasy,Religion and more.  We offer you two ways to buy… Papal and money order, with paypal its harder to offer you a shipping discount. But if you trust us..we will send you a refund after we process your order.  With money order we will send you the right bill before you send it… What we offer is When you buy more than one book first or most expenxive is shipping  full price and everyone after is 1.00  … Another deal is if you buy 4 or more books you get one free.. You email us with the choice and we take it off line for you… It must be one of the same or lesser value.

I hope we have answered all questions if not make a comment or email us at   our store is at  or   

You can follow us on twitter or here on our blog if you have something you would like to know about let us know.. we are open to new idea’s we try to follow blog hops… or we might lead you back to another blog that we though was great… Become a regular follower… We’d love to have you on board.. It gets lonely here by ourselves…Come back often and we love comments.

We just found this place.. And its in our back yard so to speak. The browser says (A one of a kind authentic 19th century working farm) the real Florida..  It was so much fun.. when we got there the ladies were in the flower garden.  They had a peach tree that they were harvesting the peaches to can..The flowers were just beautiful

It says..The Dudley landscape is typical of the early Florida Farm with gardens, grape arbors, pecan and fruit trees, pastures, pinewoods, and croplands of peanuts, field peas, Sweet potatoes, and sugar cane.  It is a native habitat for animals such as deer, wild turkey, gopher, tortoises, bats and bluebirds.

In the mid 1800’s Dudley Farm consisted of rolling land covered with longleaf pine and wiregrass.  The longleaf pines provided material for all the Dudley buildings, fence posts, and split rail fences

Ponds, sinkholes, and an extensive network of cave passages permeate the area.  The rich organic soil with a clay and limestone substructure, coupled with the Florida climate, create an area well suited for agricultural use.(the last three paragraphs I copied form the liture they gave us while there.. It has a map and directions of the area…)

Dudley Farm Historic State Park, 18730 W.Newberry Road,Newberry,Fl 32669   (352) 472-1142

Open 9am to 5pm Farmstead closes at 4pm Closed Monday and Tuesdays

iPhones, Hurricanes and Weatherangels…

Posted by: weatherangel on: January 31, 2009 

So, I’ve come into this with really no information on what I want to write.  Just the expectation from my Mom that I should write something   So I am here to write something.  Something.

Okay, task one done!

I’ve been helping my Mom set up her first blog.  It’s been fun, and the awesome part is that she can finally do so much on her own!  I tried to teach my Mom about computers back in the 1980’s, when I was in middle and high school, learning about computers, bulletin board systems (BBSes) and all the cool things you could do with a computer.  It was only after she met my Dad that she finally wanted to really understand – and I’ve done my best to teach her what I can. She’s been a great student of technology, especially since it changes so fast! I think it has finally gotten “easy enough” for most people to handle, instead of only the geeky people like me.

Recently I have discovered that I absolutely LOVE wordpress.  For quite a while I didn’t understand the love affair with it, but now that it has matured, even my Mom can use it with a fair amount of ease, and only a few questions!  I’ve been able to point her at the docs (not doctors), and she’s found them, read them and understands them (I think).  It’s killer! And that’s Kudos to the wordpress team!

I will probably be jumping on here from time to time, helping out my Mom, and getting things set up.  I may even write a few book reviews, which I’ve wanted to do anyway, but never had a place to put them

Mom wanted me to mention something about what I do professionally also… I’ve been writing Web Applications for 13 years now – which in itself is hard to believe! My most recent accomplishment is being a part of a two woman programming team, and writing Hurricane for the iPhone and iPod Touch. It has been a great challenge, and a lot of fun to watch something we created not only come to life, but be appreciated.

I suppose I should mention that my favorite authors, since this is a book related site. They are Johanna Lindsey, Madeline Hunter, Elizabeth Boyle and Elaine Coffman.  I can thank my Mom’s book store for that one — she handed me my first Johanna Lindsey book about 3 years ago and I fell in LOVE with her writing style, and eagerly await each new Malory searies book!  I’ve spent MANY a night up almost all night reading instead of sleeping.

If there’s anything you would like to see here, just let us know!  And if you are looking for a book you can’t seem to find, just let my Mom know!  She will do her best to track down the book for you – she is extremely good at finding those hard to find books, so just ask!

Love to read, turned a hobby into a pretty good store for a very long time… Last year after 4 yrs of higher and higher prices, and changed rules more often than we can count, we moved from eBay to eCRATER. 

There are only two things I can’t do at the new store or you can’t do..Move from one persons books to another.. example 1 (search for one title and find every book in ebay with that title so you get lots of sellers offerings. In eCrater you go from one store to another and look at all the persons books..) 2nd example (shipping discounts.. can’t offer them directly like before.. If you want a shipping discount you must pay full price andI will send you back a refund as soon as I get your order.  shipping discount is buy first book or largest weighting book in your choice of books pay full price  every book after in the SAME order is $1.00 shipping and handling.  The only way to do this in eCRATER is to payful price and I will send you a refund as soon as I get the order… Of course if you do money order you can have your discount right away… as you are mailing me amount after I send bill …

I offer over 1000 books and other items in my store come take a look… Over 100 authors listed by name and some are in random spots where they belong, romance, mystery etc.. We even have two books autographed personally by authors… Debbie Macomber and Joe Bullard  Have summer Flip Flops  Patricia Rice , Nora Roberts , childrens  Johanna Lindsey Fanatsy  These are just a few… We offer CD’s and Cassettes for talking books, we have music CD’s from some of my favorite singers, Reba, Collin Raye, Garth Brooks. We have Harliquin at new low prices  Come see our store at or We do have one book in both ebay and amazon.. “Waiting for Agnes” is offered in three places at three different prices. This is because the companys have different prices they charge to sell for me.. eCRATER is the lowest as they do not charge me anthing to sell there… So again eCRATER has the best deals… I have lower priced books and will offer a shipping discount when asked…any questions  email me at If you need references go to eBay and see my over 2000 feedbacks.. Have a great day.  Picture of the day……….

DSC00288I love to read. I have been reading Debbie Macomber for about 10yrs.. I have met her three times now… The first time was in her home town of Port Orchard,WA.. At the time my daughter and family were living near Seattle which is across the bay from Debbie… I got to see all the sights and Debbie and my grandchildren. The time 2007 when this picture was taken she was here in Florida my husband drove me 200 miles to see her. It was so great. The picture I am putting below this is from this year when she was in Talahassee  This is only 2hrs.. from my home and about 4 from the new winter home you have all heard about that she and Wayne got this year. If you have not read one of her books you are missing a good read Great family stories… Cedar Cove is her big series.. #9 comes out in September.. I can’t keep them in my used store They go as soon as I get them in.. I have an autographed copy of “Summer on Blossom Street  this is her latest book on Blossom Street.   Come see this and more at or

The only funny thing I can think of is almost forgot to write on my blog today… After 7 months of writting at least once a day if not several times…

Writting to tell everyone about my two stores on line…..

Funny  I have a shot glass store and I own over 1200 shot glasses and don’t drink.. Started out as an inexpensive item to buy when traveling to remember our trip and it was small to pack .. Then everytime a customer or other employee ent on a trip I would get one… Well its gotten way out of hand.. Now I am into books have over 3000 used and new books and keep getting more have a wonderful on line store… Not much business right now but it fills my time… I have books that authors have autographed…

Just finished Robyn Carr’s Temptation Ridge… great book now I am looking for the next one….
